Falcons prediction for 2014 NFC South rankings

18 posts in this topic

Some of the other items from the presser:

 

  • He expects a quick turnaround in 2014
  • Believes that head coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff can get it done.
  • He expects a winning season and the playoffs or more changes would be forth coming.
  • He will continue to spend up to the salary cap to make sure the team is talented.
  • The search for replacements coaches (to replace some asst's that were fired) is under way. “Lots of coaches are anxious to come to Atlanta"
  • The Falcons will not take a skill position player with the 6th pick in the draft.
  • Blank hates “splash” moves and doesn’t plan to make any in free agency. He believes that “winning” sells tickets.

why call a press conference to say this, though?  screams of 'hey look at me! we're still here! pay attention to meeeeee!!!!'

 

btw...if he 'expects a winning season and playoffs' then he wouldn't add the 'or more changes are coming' part.  Sounds more like 'hoping for a winning season and playoffs' is what he was looking for.

i don't know what "changes" specifically refer to but i'd welcome them toying with the idea of firing mike smith

 

he's gotten two top seeds and five straight winning seasons out of a team that's become increasingly unsound fundamentally with each passing year.

Well, having Scott Pioli joining their staff, as a Assistant GM, isn't going to help their cause......

I disagree. He was a big reason you have good contracts on your roster and why KC has the talent they do. Especially on the lines. Which is where we need it
